What's smart, enough for a Duchess
is smart enough for you, say all the
milliners in their promotion of that
most versatile and practical of hats,
the calot
The Duchess ownsthis, her pet
head-gear, in a dozen versions, we
are told by fashion reporters. Follow-
ing her lead, plain, embroidered, nail-
studded or in more elaborate form
complete with snood, the calot or
pill-box caps many of the feminine
heads of the country.
Its head-hugging simplicity em-
phasizes the shape of the head, shows
off well-groomed hair, and accents
your best features. In short, it's the
kind of a hat that you'll enjoy wear-
ing when you're tempted to go hatless
and know you really shouldn't.

WAA Sponsors
Training Course
In Leadership
"Lead the Lint Behind the Line"
is the motto of the extra-eurricular
leadership training course sponsored
by WAA which will meet at 4:15 p.m.
Monday in the Dance Studio of Bar-
bour Gymnasium.
Under the direction of Gertrude
Inwood, '43, the group will train Uni-
Versity women for community leader-
ship in singing, leading children's
games, telling stories, and work in
crafts. The women will be given prac-
ticals experience here on campus in
working with children; besides this
course instruction.
."One way of helping in the national!
}mergency," Miss Inwood said, "is
to keep physically fit and to lead in
any and all situations in which ole
is called upon to aid." As part of the
program, the group will emphasize
physical fitness and point out any
remedial defects to the women, such
as defective teeth. Pointers will also
be givep on corrective exercise if the
group w shes it.
Leadership will be the main focus
of attention, however, and the pro-
gram will be moulded to fit the needs
and interests of all. There will be
six or eight meetings which will deal
with general trends and ideas, then
the work will be specialized and active
work will begin. Anyone who is in-
terested in 'leading the line behind
the line,' and helping in the national
emergency, is urged to come out.

Mimes Publicity ,Man,

Is Typical High-Pressure


There are a great many


about the opening of Mimes, just as
there are about the opening of any
amateur show, which could be cis-
cussed to the tune of much haw haw-
ing. The usual number of college re-
view "fowx passes" occurred and
there was the usual amount of un-
premeditated humor. (In this case it
even outbalanced the premeditated
If you were there the first night,
you could have clutched the arms ofJ
your seat in a sort of gleeful horror
along with the rest o-f the premiere
audience when an extremely large
and ever-widening gap appeared in
the back seam of. Jeff Solomon's
trousers.. You would probably, top,
have heard the few bellows of
"More!" from the front rows when
one of the Can-Can Girls found the
bodice of her, dress slipping.
West Is Best
But you'd have to be a little more
closely connected to either the Opera
itself or to The Daily if you were to
see the best act that Mimes could
offer-the frantic spectacle of Don
West, high-pressure publicity chair-
man for both the Opera and for the
Union in one of his, sessions of tear-
ing at his owil hair and screaming
loud threats of .lynching the man-
aging editor if the. Opera didn't get
better coverage-and all this in one

fell swoop-(as We often say in the
Cliche Club.)
Don did everything but sew the
costumes and model them himself to
get photographs of the cast into the
latest issue of Garg. He was so wild-
eyed about the whole thing that theI
Garg photographer, discovering that
hey hadn't_ an additional plate for one
last phot of the committee, decided
not to endanger Don's already over-
taxed :arteries and simply told the
boys to lineup.
An Untaken Picture
He then solemnly flashed his last
bulb, clicked the lenses over an un-
loaded camera, and every one was
happy, including Don who probably
couldn't have stood it if he had known
the awful truth. (Now get a grip
on yourself as you read this, West.
Life can be beautiful!)
In short, Mimes missed its best bet
by not including the old type char-
acte; of the demon publicity man as
one of the characters who came to
life under a pulp magazine writer's
pen and putting West-the hysterical'
prototype, if we ever saw it, into the

Stockwell Hears Dean Lloyd

Name Women's War Program

At all all-out house meeting at 11
p.m. Wednesday in Stockwell, Dean
Alice Lloyd spoke on the duties col-
lege women can fulfill in the present
"The best thing you can do in this
crisis is kesep on with the work you
have," she declared. "The country is
going to need its women. You will
be doing swell work if you do good
work in college."
Miss Lloyd advised the limiting of
listening to radio broadcasts to two
good ones a day as it takes up too
much time and is too unsettling to
listen to bad news constantly. "There
are other ways of being well-in-
formed," she remarked, and recom-
mended the many fine lectures given
every week on campus and the many

informative books being published
every day such as Berlin Diary, Look-
ing for Trouble and Where Stands the
Winged! Sentry.
Dean Lloyd added further that wo-
men may start new courses in nurs-
ing and home mechanics after the
Christmas holidays, and suggested
that dormitory defense committees be
set up in coordination with her own
committee to organize residents who
wish to volunteer for war work. She
said, "One thing we have had to learn
in this crisis is to give and give and
Concluding her talk she asked col-
lege women to keep calm, steady and
healthy, and to do their studies well.
"I am going to count on all of you.
May God give us the strength and
